Presenter: P. Greaney, WorkCare, Inc., Anaheim, CA.

How do you know with a reasonable degree of certainty whether a worker is physically and mentally able to safely perform essential job functions? An experienced occupational medicine physician will describe a legally defensible fitness-for-work evaluation process. Industrial hygiene professionals and their EHS colleagues will acquire knowledge and tools to help them: identify potential physical and mental impairments; reduce exposure and liability risks; recognize how psychosocial factors impact behavior; and protect workers, customers and the general public from harm.
